1940s Universal Geneve Compax Water-Resistant Chronograph with Rare Lemon-Colored Dial
PRICE : ￥1,200,000(税別)
Mid 1940’s Universal Geneve ‘Compax’ Chronograph in stainless steel, a popular water-resistant chronograph with a rare lemon-colored dial.
The unique lemon-coloured dial, one of the few of its kind at Universal, features a unique design with black-rimmed silver Arabic numerals and baton hands, and is a rare example of a three-register chronograph with a mechanical look and a wonderful colour. The water-resistant, dustproof screwback case is massive, and the 38mm size of the case also gives the watch an appealing presence: it is equipped with the famous Universal Cal. 285, which was used in many chronographs from the 1930s to the 1960s.
